Description

Sally, a typist at NAAFI HQ in Famagusta, is one of 300 volunteers recruited during the 1958 State of Emergency to replace Greek-Cypriot staff after a bomb incident at RAF Nicosia. She meets Edward, a war veteran and Army Schools teacher. Trouble looms when police discover his boat has been ‘borrowed’ for gun-running. They are told to carry on as normal, but nothing is normal any more. Are the innocent truly innocent and is the primary suspect one of theirs or one of ours?

    I have greatly enjoyed reading Pamela Howarths’ “The Hidden Sun”. I found it a fascinating and well-paced read. Highly authentic in its setting.
    Beneath the superficial lightheartedness of the story is a sober thread, evocative of a period in our recent history which should never be forgotten.

    This is the fastest thing between covers I’ve ever read. Pamela Howarth takes us straight into the 1958 State of Emergency in Cyprus among a group of care-free girl volunteers working for NAAFI. Although they are all bent on enjoying life, we see over a period of only five days that beneath the glamour and excitement there is a constant threat from terrorists. Every piece of this intricate plot fits snugly as in a jig-saw. What’s more, it’s true ‘Fifties from speech and code of conduct right down to stocking sizes. I read late into the night, because there was never a convenient place to stop, and next day couldn’t get back to normal life till I’d finished it. Swallow it down like an oyster and you’ll be happy. Bon appetit!
